Here's the issue last year I set up my Two Direct TV dishes last year. One points at the standard Sattellite and one is pointing at the Hi Def Bird.

At that time I bought a 22khz switch pluged the two dishes into it and it into my DTC 100. I immediately did not receive the Hi def dish. Whereas individually plugged into the DTC 100, the Hi def input gave me an 80 on the signal strength meter, when plugged into the switched it dropped the strength to 39 and did not display the picture because of the weakeness of the signal. I tried 2 of the same switches from the mail order place and got the same result. Since then I've been switching the RG6 cable by phsically unplugging one from the DTC 100 and swapping it with the other. I want to get this solved thou. Has anyone had this happen? And does anyone have a link to a good source of switches? And finally is there any other way of doing what I'm trying to do. Any help anyone can give me is appreciated.

I had the same setup you did, with 2 18" dishes and a 22kHz switch, and it ran with no problems. I've since upgraded to a 4x4 multiswitch. The switch is used, but if you wanted to try it, maybe we can work something out - [email protected] .
